    Up for sale is a rare Canali THREE-PIECE suit in true size 38R. New with tags. Recent model (2011-ish)

    The suit is basically built to "Styleforum spec."

    It features a slim cut, FULL CANVAS construction, minimally padded shoulders, double vents, and a great "Air Force Blue" in midweight wool. The icing on the cake are the working buttons holes!

    The Air Force Blue fabric on this suit is awesome. Subtle stripes. Slightly slubby. Canali sources fabrics from some of the best mills in Italy and England for its suits The fabric on this suit is no exception. Four season weight. You will not be disappointed!

    The suit is tagged a size 40R US / 50r EU, but fits like a true 38R US / 48R EU (see measurements below)


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I have excellent feedback here

    The MSRP on Canali three-piece suits is about $2300, which turns into over $2500 when you factor in local sales tax. So consider this a deal on an staple suit in a rare size.

    $825 shipped to the United States or Canada I sold this grey two-piece Canali sold for $725

    I will ship to the rest of the world at cost. Please add $12 for shipping to the rest of the world (countries that are not the US or Canada).

    PayPal or Postal Money order only. I cannot accept personal payments in PayPal. As is implied with all SF classified listings, the sale is final. Sold as is.

    First one to pay gets the item.

    I will only grant "holds" for those who pay via PayPal eCheck.

    Again, very nice! I believe you're correct that this is from 2011 (it could be one of their 'featured' fabrics from that season). I've also seen this in a double-breasted.

    In other words, I'm very tempted to pull the trigger on this one.
